links for 2009-11-23: Steve Jobs hates the App Store; ChromeOS
By kevinschmidt on Nov 23, 2009
- Steve Jobs hates the App Store - Provocative piece that probably has some truth to it. The original story was Web apps in Safari but Apple caved and gave us the App Store, but said if we do it we'll control it with an iron fist.
- Apple's Schiller defends app approval process; misses the point - An approval process is fine, it is an opaque and undeterministic one that has problems.
- Google's Chrome OS: Will you give up desktop apps? - Similar story, will consumers finally buy into a completely web-based experience? Current response to poll on the blog is 74% no.
- Sergey Brin: Google Android, Chrome OS likely to converge - Not a surprise, but interesting he is now saying it.
